Enjoying my new +Samsung Canada Gear Fit smartwatch. Wish it had better syncronization with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I have not been able to sync any exercise data from my watch to the phone. Without S Health it seems pretty useless. I tried it with a Galaxy S5 and it worked amazingly. When is Kit Kat coming for the Note 2? Hoping S Health is included.

Issues/Problems  - 
 
My car battery died the other day. There were no working electronics at all, I had to use the key to get into the car. I am curious if the screen light was left on from MFT (I've seen it sometimes where the center console display and tachometer screens still show white light). There were no interior or exterior lights on all night. Anyone have any thoughts? The 2011 Ford Edge SEL is 3 years old.

Looks like news is going around to everywhere about the potential for #Blackberry  to be replacing #Microsoft  for infotainment in their 7 million vehicles. Hopefully it will be smooth transition for all of us current users and we don't get left in the past.

#ford  really needs to take a serious look and a reliable replacement. The #microsoft relationship is simply not working. If they don't have a new platform thats high performance and fully integrates with all major mobile OS's I won't buy another ford vehicle.

More info on upcoming changes to MyFord Touch - The buttons and knobs are making a comeback! I for one can attest to having major residue left on the screen from using the touch buttons. I appreciate the quick access, but with I applied a screen protector in the beginning.

I don't actually mind the touchscreen and looks like they are only adding tactile to the other stuff that for my explorer wasn't on the screen. Btw - any recommended screen protector for 2012 ford explorer?

Microsoft showed off new Windows 8 car concept UI. This is just initial testing phase and odds are we wouldn't see it on out current MyFord Touch hardware. Nice to see Microsoft making something similar to thier multiplatform OS that everyone is becoming more familiar with. +Ford Motor Company +Microsoft Corporation #MyFordTouch

This is from the concept model at the Toronto Auto Show. Running on an ipad in the back seat. Notice the media controls at the bottom while in the climate. Looks like a neat idea. Maybe this is an update that would allow a second screen of sorts for MyFord Touch

This is pretty sweet but.....  I just purchased brand new 2013 and 2014 vehicles with Ford SYNC/MFT.  I am only one customer, with 2 vehicles, but my decision to purchase another Ford in the future is definitely tied to how they take care of us current owners with needed fixes and future upgrades.

Enjoying the ability to see traffic via My Ford Touch. Being in Canada I don't have the ability to use Sirius Travel Link unless a free SiriusXM preview is on.

Really crappy.  They should give traffic for free to SiriusXM music subscribers.  Come on +Ford Motor Company , get your act together.  You are encouraging Canadian users to pull out their cell phone to get traffic data, not safe!  I won't be renewing my +SiriusXM  music next time.

Looks like there is hope for getting together Applink and My Ford Touch! This article highlights the potential possibility of Applink being ready for the half of next year. I assume this would be in conjunction with the launch of the new 2015 Mustang. Check it out! +Ford Motor Company

Good find +Aaron Desjardins .  This would be great news if we were to get an update in 2014 with Applink support!

Not a good place to price match. They claim not to PM online stores, they wasted my time checking stores.

Great falafels every time. The pitas are always warm and their takout service is extremely fast. The family dinners are the best price.

We've ordered online and over the phone and every time the pizza has turned out great. Have not had pizza anywhere else but here in Waterdown.

Prices are not advertised and a bit steep compared to other places. Would rather drop off at a grocery store.
